Small Business Lessons: Laurie Pehar Borsh PR

The Problem: A seasoned public relations executive, Laurie Pehar Borsh has owned her own agency for over 20 years. After landing a huge client in March of 2013, she needed financing to take on a new employee and purchase office equipment. Even though she had a profitable business, the bank wouldn’t lend to her because she lacked any assets or collateral.

The Solution: After learning about OnDeck through her bank, and hearing that the application process only took minutes, Laurie decided to apply online. She was approved that day and had the capital she needed shortly thereafter.

The Result: Laurie was able to take on additional employees to accommodate her new client. She has since taken out additional financing with OnDeck and has grown her business by 25%.
